why in a minute he's not just another whackadoo. live to dallas, texas, where ted cruz is about to speak in just a moment. see the big defund obama care banner which lets you know what the event is going to be like. also tonight the terrifying prospect that one result of the bankruptcy of the city of detroit could be the thousands of potential personal bankruptcies caused by the slashing of retirees' pensions. a full discussion on that is coming up. all that plus i am absolutely geeking out a little bit over what i think is the coolest car ever. the tesla. i will tell you why it's so cool but also why it's so important. >>> but tonight we begin with a man who i believe is the most dangerous politician on the american right. in october 2007 i sat in the media gallery of the united states supreme court and watched the solicitor general of texas argue on behalf of the state that he should have the ability to put to death a mexican national, jose, who had been convicted of raping and murdering two teenage girls in houston. he won that argument and he was executed by texas on august

was born. unless the texas republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say." ted cruz released his canadian birth certificate in response to inquiries from the "dallas morning news." today ted cruz's senate press secretary released this oddly worded statement. "to our knowledge, he never had canadian citizenship." now, when a senator's staff speak for the senator says "to our knowledge," everything that follows that is a statement that everyone in that senate office knows might have to be quickly revised, and so it has been. the "washington post" is now reporting that ted cruz will renounce his canadian citizenship. cruz said, "now the dallas morning news says that i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that is true, then sure, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada, but i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should be only an american because i was a u.s. citizen at birth, because i left calgary when i was 4, and have lived my entire life since then in the u.s., an

for the u.s. senate in texas. it started in january of 2011. i was at 2% in the polls. the margin of error was 3%. those were the real poll numbers. and we were thrilled. we went through a $50 million primary. the most expensive primary in the country. $35 million in nasty attack ads. after watching all of those ads, she turned to me and said, goodness gracious. i did not realize what a rotten guy you were. we saw something incredible happened. we saw thousands of men and women across texas come together. getting on facebook or twitter, enough already. we can't keep painting in pale pastels, we need to stand up and take this country back. what we saw was incredible. starting from 2%, despite being outspent 3 to 1. we won the primary by 14 points and won the general by 16. [applause] what a tremendous testament to the power of the grassroots. throughout the campaign, the pundits all said in the senate race there was no way i could win. i traveled the state of texas saying they are absolutely right. it is beyond my capacity. but you can. the only way we will win is if conservatives come toge

average in texas. >> what you're bringing us here in new york, thank you very much. >> it's great. >>> it's back to business today for the u.s. state department. all but one of the 19 embassies and consulates closed last weekend have reopened. still closed is the embassy in yemen and lahore, pakistan, remains closed due to a threat. is this an essentially all clear? how are you interpreting it? >> well, to some extent u.s. officials feel with confidence that they can allow some of the embassies or all of the embassies that have closed as a result of that to reopen. that's the case here in cairo. there's no doubt that security will remain high in these fa till si sill teas. they had actually reduced their staff because of the current unrest here in egypt. so really they are opened for business, as we understand it. things are back to normal. they are still operating at the staffing levels that actually preceded that al quiaeda threat. some staff had already left. there's no doubt they are going to remain a vigilant watch on many of these embassies in wake of the al qaeda threat that emerge
